Starquake by Robert L ForwardEnjoyed the first installment. I've had the sequel on my wish list since Nov 2010. Just realised I have a hard copy, it was a gift. It's now December's bedside book. Finished, this was pretty fascinating, the electromagnetism/gravity stuff was a bit too in-depth, but all very interesting.

Dragon's Egg by Robert L ForwardMentioned on some TV show, sounds interesting, life on a nova star. Just read this. It's been on my list for six years. I really enjoyed it, fascinating story and some really interesting ideas. Definitely need to look for some more of Forward's novels.
